Root Canal


Root canal treatment is applied in cases where the pulp (tooth nerve) is damaged in a way that it cannot repair itself with any condition like tooth decay or infection. With this treatment, it is aimed to restore functionality to the tooth that cannot function due to decay and infection and prevent tooth loss.


Root Canal Treatment Process

Root canal treatment is performed in three stages. In the first stage, detailed radiography and dental examination are performed to see the condition of the tooth and determine the treatment. In this way, the dentist can clearly see the location and severity of infection in your teeth. After the preparation process, an inflamed pulp is removed by landing in the root canal by numbing the tooth. Then the inside of the tooth disinfected. If there is any decay in the tooth at this stage, treatment of these bruises will also be done. In the third stage, the pulp cavity and canals in the tooth that are free from infection are filled up to the root tip.
